“Today marks almost 11 out of 21 kilometres excavated with the project running on schedule. For those stuck on Pennant Hills Road each day, the tunnel can’t come fast enough,” said Mr Kean.

“Around 500 Olympic sized swimming pools of spoil have been excavated from underneath homes and businesses and is being re-used in projects throughout Sydney, including on the Hornsby Quarry rejuvenation project.”
